Cyber Stitching (60)

Life has been very quiet over the last couple of days, so nothing much to write about. BUT, great excitement yesterday morning. The postman brought my package from Australia for Mrs Martin's Quilt Shop's Cyber Stitching day on Saturday. There are starter kits for a bookmark, fridge magnet, small wall hanging and a small quilt. The book has several other pretty ideas, and I've already made the bag. Isn't it cute? The handles seem to have got tucked away when I took the photograph, so I've taken another photograph of the bag on its own. There's even a 
badge with my name on and some chocolates - chocolate raisins I think. So, apart from someone coming to view the house at 12.30 Saturday is a stitching day. Victoria, Australia is 9 hours ahead of the UK, so I'll probably be starting just as they're finishing. If I'm awake at my usual early time I should be able to just say hello via e-mail before they finish.



Today I've got to clear one of the bedrooms as we're having it decorated tomorrow. The rest of the house is okay but this room is really rather shabby, and might put potential buyers off a bit. Apart from that, and some tidying, the house is ready for sale now. I'm getting quite excited and hope we aren't disappointed.

Cyber stitching day sounds difference. It's great that your house is showing already, I hope it goes well.

Cute fabric on the bag! And, I spy a cute quilt hanger in that first picture :0) Have a quilt/hanging in mind for it?

Glad to see you're able to get some sewing in the midst of preparing your house for sale.

I'm a little behind, and I love your SC and the tote bag you came up with. I'm glad you were able to see the Amazing Technicolour
Dreamcoat and enjoy it. Your goodie bag looks quite interesting, and your feminine tote is very pretty. Looks like in spite of all that's going on with your house, that you are keeping that new machine humming.

The bag is darling - very 'summery' looking.

Great job on your first Cyber Stitching project. I'm participating here in the US. I have to trace my patterns tonight so I can start stitching tomorrow.

I am going to start my stitching on Friday because that will put me in the same time frame as the Australian ladies. Love your little bag.
